NEW YORK—New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has not yet lifted a ban on churches renting public schools in the city for Sunday worship services, after a court ruling April 3 upheld the Michael Bloomberg-era policy. Despite the ruling, churches meeting in public schools will be able to hold services on Easter Sunday thanks to a forthcoming legal maneuver.
